    R-Tech are getting good reviews mate, they'll do you a good map for your KO3S as it stands if you want to map it before going hybrid.

    They're in Hinckley so not a million miles away from you and also come out to do it at your home address etc. People who have spoken to them from here have nothing but praise for them....good prices too

    Brakes - Ferodo DS2500 front pads and grooved discs should be enough.

    I had a good hunt about to try and find one but I couldnt. I had to get a little bit trimmed out of my bumper as I didnt like the exhausts that hang down underneath.

    As mentioned, DS2500's but if you are planning on fitting a hybrid K03 then I would look to get a 312mm conversion done... change the carriers of yours to S3/TT ones and get some 312mm S3 discs... Plenty of threads on here with info about it

    Also wouldnt it be better to go turbo back? As youll be left with the standard downpipe which will hold back a bit of power when you go hybrid as its very restrictive.. Also is your induction kit heat sheilded. Is it quattro ? If not that's going to be a beast !!!

    yeah im goin turbo back fully de-catted, it hasn't got a heat sheild but ill be getting a sheild for it, its a fwd facelift....
    ill have a look at getting an s3 set up. i noticed an a3 with the valance cut out and looked good so im sure powerflow have done it before so it should b a neat and tidy job.

    Oh right yer was going to say!. Ahh nice thatll be crazy once moving. you thought about a differential to get the power down better at all? They aint cheap though thats what puts people off. Yer bes getting it sheilded otherwise youll just be sucking in hot air.
